1. The Hindi Noun: Definition and Types


Nouns 1

Now, it’s time to study the main definition of the noun and its types in Hindi. While discussing this, you’ll learn the Hindi noun definition and types, the meaning of nouns in Hindi, and see some noun examples/sentences in Hindi.

Nouns in Hindi vocabulary are an inseparable part of the language. A “noun” in Hindi is known as संज्ञा (Sangyaa).

There can be no better way of learning about Hindi nouns than by introducing ourselves to the most basic Hindi definition of noun, which goes as follows:

  • किसी भी व्यक्ति, वस्तु, अथवा स्थान के नाम को संज्ञा कहते हैं।
    kiSii bhii vyakTi, vaSTu, aTHavaa STHaaN ke NaaM ko Sangyaa kahaTe hain.
    The name of a person, place, or thing is called a noun.

As we move forward in this lesson, you’ll notice that almost all nouns in the Hindi language are divided into masculine and feminine nouns in Hindi, whereas in English, this doesn’t apply.

So, how many types of nouns are there in Hindi? Well, there is a total of five types. In this section, we’ll discuss all five types of nouns in Hindi with examples.

1- Common Nouns in Hindi


A common noun in Hindi is known as जातिवाचक संज्ञा (jaaTivaacak Sangyaa). These are words that are used to name a person or place in a general sense.

Actually, all nouns in Hindi are either common or proper. The rest of the types described below fall under the category of common nouns. Even the uncountable and countable nouns in Hindi are examples of common nouns.

Common noun examples/sentences in Hindi are:

  • बच्चा फल खा रहा है।
    baccaa phaL khaa rahaa hai.
    The kid is eating the fruit.

  • लड़की खेल रही है।
    Ladakii kheL rahii hai.
    The girl is playing.

2- Proper Nouns in Hindi


Next is the proper noun. The word for proper noun in Hindi is व्यक्तिवाचक संज्ञा (vyakTi vaacak Sangyaa). Proper nouns in Hindi grammar are the words which specify a special name of any person or place.

A few well-known proper nouns are:

  • महात्मा गाँधी (mahaaTmaa gaaNDHii)      Mahatma Gandhi (name of an Indian leader)

  • क़ुतुब मीनार (quTub miiNaar)      Qutub Minar (name of a historical place)

  • दिल्ली (DiLLii)           Delhi (name of capital)

  • गंगा (gangaa)           Ganga (name of river)

3- Abstract Nouns in Hindi


The third type of noun are the abstract nouns.

Abstract nouns in Hindi are known as भाववाचक संज्ञा (bhaav vaacak Sangyaa). As the name suggests, abstract nouns stand for words that depict a particular state, emotion, or condition of any person or thing.

Some of the abstract noun examples are:

  • ख़ुशी (khusii)           Happiness

  • ग़रीबी (ġariibii)           Poverty

  • कोमलता (komaLaTaa)           Softness

  • मिठास (mithaaS)           Sweetness

  • अनुशासन (aNusaaSaN)           Discipline

4- Material Nouns in Hindi


The fourth category is the material noun, which is also one of the most common types of nouns in Hindi.

The translation of material noun in Hindi is वस्तु वाचक (vaSTu vaacak) / द्रव्य वाचक संज्ञा (Dravya vaacak Sangyaa). Some examples of material nouns that are in the Hindi vocabulary are mentioned below.

  • लकड़ी (Lakadii)           Wood

  • लोहा (Lohaa)           Iron

  • ऊन (uuN)           Wool

  • पानी (paaNii)           Water

5- Collective Nouns in Hindi


In Hindi, collective nouns are समूहवाचक संज्ञा (Samuuh vaacak Sangyaa).

They basically refer to any group of people, places, or things. Some of the collective nouns that are in the Hindi vocabulary are given below.

  • गुच्छा (gucchaa)           Bunch

  • सेना (SeNaa)           Army

  • बंडल (baNdaL)           Bundle

  • भीड़ (bhiid)           Crowd

6- Concrete Nouns in Hindi


Concrete nouns are any nouns which can be felt through any of our five sensory organs. These five sensations are touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing.

General examples of concrete nouns used in basic Hindi conversations are:

  • कमरा (kamaraa)           Room

  • मेज़ (mez)           Table

  • सब्ज़ी (Sabzii)           Vegetables

  • घास (ghaaS)           Grass

  • आसमान (aaSamaaN)           Sky

With this, we’ve got you covered with the basic definitions of nouns and their types in Hindi. Now you can confidently identify various proper nouns, abstract nouns, and common nouns in Hindi.

So, after reading this short lesson, you’re officially ready to check out these top 100+ nouns in the Hindi language and learn how to use these words in day-to-day conversations.

  • In the tables below, we’ve included both Hindi nouns and their gender. The gender of each noun has been mentioned in a small bracket alongside the noun. You can see it in the format of (m) or (f). Here, (m) stands for masculine and (f) stands for feminine.

  • For words that qualify as both masculine and feminine, the symbol (m/f) has been used.

  • The second column of every table contains the meaning of Hindi nouns in English. And in the last column, we’ve given examples on how to use the nouns in sentences.

1. Importance of Life Event Messages in Hindi

Whether it’s a pleasant occasion or a sad moment, the little yet meaningful words of Hindi congratulations messages or condolences allow people to express their solidarity with each other. Expressing best wishes in Hindi and passing along your condolences in Hindi are just some simple ways of saying “We’ll be together in everything, come rain or shine.”

Isn’t it amazing to realize that when shared with others, happiness increases manifold, and sadness diminishes like a dream! At some point, you too will become a part of someone’s crucial moment. In those times, knowing how to speak or write Happy Birthday wishes in Hindi and other holiday messages in Hindi really brings two people closer.

Moreover, special moments in the form of significant life events in India offers us a great chance to improve Hindi language skills and discover a warm way of communicating with native Hindi speakers. You can grab these opportunities to share expressions like “Wish you a very happy birthday,” in Hindi or “Happy anniversary,” and win people’s hearts with your best wishes in Hindi.

Engagement Ceremony

Apart from these cheerful holiday greetings in Hindi, learning the Hindi language also enables you to send sad life event messages, such as funeral messages. That’s why it’s essential to read about these special situations and learn what to say on such occasions.

2. Wishing a Happy Birthday in Hindi

Happy Birthday

There’s nothing more precious than the day you were born. So, we’ll begin our lesson with Happy Birthday wishes in Hindi. In India, milestones such as the first birthday of a child, or the fiftieth birthday of an adult, are celebrated in a grand way.

But those instances are rare. More often than not, birthdays are either a private event with just family members and close friends, though they can be quite large and impressive.

Indians are emotional and sensitive when it comes to their birthdays. And honestly, who isn’t! If you have a few native friends and know how to wish them Happy Birthday in Hindi, it would mean a lot to them.

There are various ways to say “Wish you a happy birthday,” in Hindi. If we want to break it down, “birthday” is जन्मदिन (jaNmaDiN) and “anniversary” is सालगिरह (SaaLagirah). The English words “happy” and “best wishes” are interchangeable phrases with the same meaning in Hindi: शुभ कामनाएं (subh kaamaNaayen).

Below, we’ve covered the most common styles of sharing Happy Birthday wishes in Hindi.

  • जन्मदिन की बहुत सारी बधाई। (jaNmaDiN kii bahuT Saarii baDHaaii.)
    “Many many happy returns of the day.”
    Spoken and written both formally and informally.
  • सालगिरह मुबारक हो। (SaaLagirah mubaarak ho.)
    “Happy birthday.”
    Spoken and written both formally and informally.

There may be some instances when personal engagements keep you busy and you forget to wish the person on time. In such cases, here’s a way to send your good wishes:

  • देर से बधाई के लिए माफ़ करना। जन्मदिन मुबारक हो। (Der Se baDHaaii ke Liye maaf karaNaa. jaNmaDiN mubaarak ho.)
    “Sorry for the late congratulations. Belated happy birthday.”
    Spoken and written in an informal manner.

3. Holiday Wishes in Hindi

Basic Questions

Every country has its own unique set of festivals and local celebrations. These may be religious, social, or national occasions. Being in a country like India, you’ll hardly have a dull moment because there are several kinds of Indian festivities happening all year long.

Now that you’ve already mastered how to send Happy Birthday wishes in Hindi, we’ll help you explore the traditional holiday greetings in Hindi.

1- Happy New Year Greetings in Hindi

The culture of wishing a happy new year to your loved ones is as popular in India as anywhere else in the world. To quench your curiosity, let’s begin this chunk about holiday greetings in Hindi with learning how to wish a Happy New Year in Hindi.

Happy New Year Wishes

Sending Happy New Year best wishes in Hindi is quite simple. And honestly, there’s no single way to say it.

  • The most widespread fashion to wish a Happy New Year in Hindi is नया साल मुबारक हो (Nayaa SaaL mubaarak ho), which translates to “Wish you a happy new year.”
    Spoken and written in an informal manner.
  • People also send Happy New Year greetings by saying and writing नए साल की शुभ कामनाएँ (Naye SaaL kii subh kaamaNaayen), which translates to “Best wishes on the new year!”
    Spoken and written both formally and informally.
  • Many folks prefer to send happy New Year wishes by saying नवीन हिन्दू वर्ष की बधाई (NaviiN hiNDuu vars kii baDHaaii), or “Greetings of the Hindu New Year.”
    Written in a formal manner.

2- How to Say Merry Christmas in Hindi

Christmas is called बड़ा दिन (badaa DiN) in Hindi, though it’s also known by its English name, that is क्रिसमस (kriSamaS). There are two common ways to say Merry Christmas in Hindi.

  • क्रिसमस की ढेर सारी बधाई। (kriSamaS kii dher Saarii baDHaaii.)
    “Merry Christmas”.
    Spoken and written both formally and informally.

This is also one of the most popular and simplest styles of sending Merry Christmas wishes in Hindi SMS.

Christmas Celebrations

  • बड़ा दिन मुबारक हो। (badaa DiN mubaarak ho.)
    “Merry Christmas.”
    Spoken and written in an informal manner.

Now that you’ve learned how to say Merry Christmas in Hindi, let’s switch to some other special occasions.

3- Happy Valentine’s Day in Hindi

Before we explore the Hindi phrase for Valentine’s Day, do you know about Friendship Day?

The term “friendship” can be translated into many forms in the language. Some of the appropriate words are दोस्ती (DoSTii) and मित्रता (miTraTaa).

And to say Happy Friendship Day in Hindi, that would be मित्रता दिवस (miTraTaa DivaS).

For writing in a formal manner, the phrase would be:

  • मित्रता दिवस की शुभ कामनाएं। (miTraTaa DivaS kii subh kaamaNaayen)
    “Happy Friendship Day.”

As far as Valentine’s Day is concerned, there’s no colloquial word for that. Even in Hindi, the name is written and spoken as वैलेंटाइन्स डे (vaiLeNtaaiNS de).

4- Happy Independence Day in Hindi

India got its independence from British rule on August 15, 1947. Thus, this date is known as Independence Day. The national holiday is celebrated every year on August 15, and all schools, colleges, and offices remain closed on this day.

Indians pay their tribute to freedom fighters and remind each other of their sacrifices by generously sharing Happy Independence Day messages in Hindi.

The literal translation of “Independence Day” is स्वतंत्रता दिवस (SvaTaNTraTaa DivaS), while “independence” or “freedom” is colloquially known as आज़ादी (aazaaDii).

So, if you’re in India and wish to be a part of this patriotic feeling that Indians share, there’s no better way to do it than by sending them Happy Independence Day messages in Hindi.

India's Independence Day

Here’s a great one you can use:

  • आप सभी को स्वतंत्रता दिवस की हार्दिक शुभ कामनाएं। (aap Sabhii ko SvaTaNTraTaa DivaS kii haarDik subh kaamNaayen.)
    “Wish you all a Happy Independence Day.”
    Spoken and written formally.

So, next time you’re in India, how would you like to share the Happy Independence messages in Hindi?

3 Reasons to Learn a Language Alone

Learning Alone

1. Learn at Your Own Pace and On Your Schedule

In today’s fast-paced world, there just isn’t time for traditional classroom instruction. Between getting to class and studying on some professor or teacher’s schedule, traditional classroom learning is simply impossible to fit in. But when you learn Hindi alone, you can study in bed if you like and whenever suits your schedule best, making it far easier to actually reach your goal of learning and mastering the language.

2. Learning a Language on Your Own Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Speaking in front of a class, pop quizzes, and tests are just a few of the stressors you will encounter when you learn a language in a traditional classroom setting. Specifically, these are external stressors that often derail most people’s dream of learning a new language. But when you learn Hindi alone, there are no external stressors. Without the external stress and anxiety, it becomes much easier and more exciting to study Hindi and reach your very own goals—all on your own!

3. Learning Hindi Alone Helps Improve Cognitive Function and Overall Success

Learning a language on your own is indeed more challenging in some ways than being taught in a traditional classroom setting. In fact, while classroom instruction requires more rote memorization and following instructions, studying a language on your own requires more problem-solving and higher cognitive function to self-teach lessons and hit goals. So while it’s more challenging and requires higher levels of cognition, teaching yourself a language pays dividends throughout life by better preparing you for social/work opportunities that arise.
